I was looking for a quick way to display probabilities of results of various dice rolls and found SmallRoller:

You get all sorts of options, including mixing dice types in the ‘options’ menu. I know that there are lot of dice rollers out there, but I haven’t tried many and this does what I need and is a standalone program versus something I need to be online to use.

What I like is the easy ability to display the probability curve of whatever you want:

It appears to be an older program that hasn’t been updated since 2005, but I think it does everything I need for analyzing various scenarios. If I was going to use something in a game, I’d probably look at one that was a little quicker to use.

What other dice rolling programs do people like?

    Thank you for this link. I’ve got a terrible head for dice probabilities, and this looks to be right up my alley.

    When I use dice rolling programs, I usually just google it and pick something with polyhedral support. You might be surprised at the number of programs that just let you roll increasing numbers of d6s.

    If you don’t want to install anything (or just want to use your browser), there’s always Anydice.
